After the opening ceremony, we had about three hours before our first scrimmage, so we went back home, rested up and had a hearty breakfast. Then, right before lunch time, we were back on the field ready to play ball! We had two scrimmage games back to back and let's just say that the girls were really tired after the first one.
Alise did really well. She had good hits and fielded the ball really well, too. Today she played second and third base and was the first batter. They don't keep score in t-ball, but Coach said that the team played really well and that he was proud of them. I thought so, too, after playing for two hours straight in the hot sun in the heat of the day!
Here she is coming across home plate. Baby Girl is a little fast runner. She cracks me up because she is so serious! That's our Coach on the right. We really like him because he is so laid back and just lets the girls play and have fun which is the most important thing.
This was the last picture I took of Alise playing third base. By that time, she was tired and I even caught her yawning a time or two.
Lucky for us, most of our games are in the evenings during the week. So hopefully, there won't be any more hot, hot games!
The funniest thing that happened today was the catcher for one of the opposing teams. Her shoe was untied and she started walking off the field toward our dugout. Her mother said, "Girl, get yourself back on that field!" and the little girl said, "I can't! My shoe's untied!" I thought I was gonna fall out of my chair! T-ballers are hilarious!!
